NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Golden State Warriors at Houston Rockets

01.20.2017     10:23 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Golden State -5 at Houston O/U 239.5 
Recommendation: Golden State

When these teams met for the first time this season, the Warriors were laying -11 to the Rockets at home.  Golden State never led by more than four points at any point during that game, eventually losing outright in overtime.  The key to Golden State’s weakness that night?  Nothing more than a rare poor shooting game from their starting backcourt, as Steph Curry and Klay Thompson combined to hit just 13-of-42 from the floor.  Meanwhile, Houston role player Ryan Anderson came off the bench to score 29, including five backbreaking three pointers.

Anderson has missed the last two games with the flu, no sure thing to suit up or be effective this evening.  Here’s the quote from Rockets head coach Mike D’Antonio, following Houston’s loss in Miami earlier in the week with an injury depleted roster: “These are dog days. We're going to have to find some energy and see if we can sneak one out."

It’s been an impressive first half of the season for the Rockets, currently sitting at #3 in the West – this is not a desperate, hungry team, especially off their national TV win and cover against Milwaukee on Wednesday Night, taking the sting out of that previous loss at Miami.  But from a scheduling standpoint, the Rockets are really up against it right now.  This will be Houston’s seventh game in the last 11 nights (the first six all involved court changes and travel too).  And it’s the first night of back-to-backs – they’ll play their eighth game in 12 nights tomorrow at Memphis.

That stands in sharp contrast with the Warriors scheduling spot.  Golden State just completed an 11 day homestand in which they played only four games, allowing head coach Steve Kerr to get some much needed practice sessions in.  As a result, all of a sudden, the Warriors are playing championship level defense, ranked #4 in the NBA in defensive efficiency this month.  Their offense is playing at an extraordinarily high level as we’ve clearly seen in Golden State blowout wins over the likes of the Cavs and Thunder in their last two games.

When the Warriors are in rested and in sync, like they are right now, they’re as good as any NBA team in modern history.  Coming off those two impressive home blowouts, I wouldn’t be shocked in the slightest if Golden State wins by margin again tonight, covering the spread with room to spare.

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Detroit Red Wings at Buffalo Sabres

01.20.2017     10:20 AM     Alex Smith     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Alex Smith blog entry.
Detroit +100 at Buffalo O/U 5.5 
Recommendation: Detroit

The two cellar-dwellers in the Atlantic Division do battle tonight as the Buffalo Sabres host the Detroit Red Wings. The Wings have struggled with injuries to key players for most of the year but the loss of veteran goaltender Jimmy Howard has given way to the emergence of 25-year-old Jared Coreau. The rookie netminder has posted a 5-1-1 mark with a 3.04 gaa and a .901 save pct. While those marks aren't worthy of a Calder Trophy, Coreau seems to be a slight upgrade over Howard, who had lost his last four starts before going on IR back on December 20, and Petr Mrazek, who went 1-4 in his last five starts. Offensively, veteran Thomas Vanek has been picking up the slack left by injured forwards Niklas Kronwall and Darren Helm by scoring six goals and adding another six assists over his last 10 games. The 33-year-old who spent his first nine seasons in Buffalo leads Detroit in goals (12) and points (31). Buffalo has lost three of its last four games and has struggled over the years with Detroit, losing eight of the last 10 meetings, including 1-8 at home over the last three seasons. The young scoring duo of Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart (5 goals and 10 assists L10 games) has been the only offensive production for the Sabres of late. Goalie Robin Lehner is expected to start as his backup Anders Nilsson is sick. The 25-year-old Swedish native is 2-3-1 with a 3.52 gaa against Detroit. With the Red Wings looking to expand upon their three-game win streak as clubs try to figure out how to beat their new rookie goalie, I'll back them as the short road underdog.

NBA Handicapping: Warriors-Rockets total highest since 2010

01.20.2017     09:15 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Some rarified air tonight with the Golden State-Houston total currently sitting at 238. It's the highest NBA total since 2010 when the Warriors and Suns closed 244 and landed 264. Totals of 235 or higher are 8-8-1 O/U since 1995. Interesting that totals in regulation are nearly dead even this season at 300-299 O/U.

"Today, the Oakland Raiders submitted an application to relocate their franchise to Las Vegas, as is provided for under the NFL policy and procedures for proposed franchise relocations," the NFL said.

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Washington Capitals at St. Louis Blues

01.19.2017     10:08 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly

Submitted by ICC blog entry.
Washington at St. Louis +110 O/U 5 
Recommendation: St. Louis

I like to bet against a team that just saw an extended winning streak come to an end and that is what I’m doing here with the Capitals as they saw their nine-game win streak end in a wild, back and forth, high scoring loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday night. It’s hard for teams to avoid an emotional and mental letdown in their following game. A perfect example is Columbus who lost 5-4 to the Rangers after their massive 16-game winning streak was snapped. St. Louis is coming off a 6-4 home loss to Ottawa on Tuesday night but that was a tough spot for the Blues as they were playing their fourth game in sixth nights; all of them with travel between games. St. Louis has had issues with their goaltending of late with Jake Allen struggling and Carter Hutton hammered for five goals in that loss to the Senators. I’d expect the Blues to give Allen another chance tonight and I think he will be very motivated to deliver a strong performance. Allen notched a shutout against Washington in his lone previous appearance against the Capitals. Look for St. Louis to play with much greater energy tonight and it’s worth noting the Blues are 5-1 in their last six games following a loss. The Blues worth a look as a short home underdog.

NFL Gambling: Bettors gear up for Conference Championship weekend

01.16.2017     11:37 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly

Submitted by ICC blog entry.
The scoreboard operator at the Georgia Dome in expected to be busy at Sunday’s NFC title clash between the Packers and Falcons. Both offenses should be primed to light up the scoreboard as evidenced by the fact this game is currently lined at 60/60.5 at every major offshore and Las Vegas sportsbook. Aaron Rodgers continued his elite level play in Sunday’s thrilling 34-31 win over Dallas. He completed 28-of-43 passes for 356 yards and now has a spectacular 21-to-1 TD-to-INT ratio during the Packers’ current 8-0 SU, 7-1 ATS surge. The absence of Jordy Nelson was negated by “step up” efforts from Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison (each with three or more catches). Tight end Jared Cook also hauled in six passes including the all-important one that set up the game winning field goal. But Green Bay’s defense was exposed, especially in the secondary, where injuries remain plentiful. Dallas rolled up 429 total yards including 302 through the air. That doesn’t bode well for their matchup against Matt Ryan and an Atlanta offense that posted some of the league’s best offensive numbers. Note that the Falcons ranked tops in the league in yards per pass attempt at 8.8. And to make matter worse, the Packers lost another member of that depleted secondary when safety Morgan Burnett left the game in the first quarter with a quad injury. His status for Sunday’s game is currently questionable. With all the focus on Rogers, Ryan and two prolific offenses, it’s clear that whoever comes up with a timely turnover or red zone stop is going to have a significant edge. How about that 9-0 O/U record at the Georgia Dome this season? The average total during that span was 51. The highest total during that span was 58.5 (vs. New Orleans). And when these two teams met in the Georgia Dome back in Week 8, the closing total was 51! Of course that game went flying over as Atlanta won 33-32.

Amazingly, this is only the second time since 2005 the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots will square off in the postseason. New England’s strength of schedule this season was a well-documented league low. And not only did the Patriots routinely face weak teams but also weak quarterbacks -- the two generally go hand in hand. New England went up against Carson Palmer, Ryan Tannehill, Brock Osweiler, Tyrod Taylor, Cody Kessler, Charlie Whitehurst, Andy Dalton, Colin Kaepernick, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Jared Goff, Joe Flacco, Trevor Siemian, Bryce Petty and Matt Moore. The "best" quarterback New England has faced was Seattle’s Russell Wilson who finished the season with the league's 14th-best QB Rating. And it should be noted that Wilson carved up the Pats for 348 yards, 3 TDs, and no interceptions. Ben Roethlisberger finished 11th with a 95.4 QB Rating but didn't play (hence Landry Jones) in New England's 27-16 Week 7 win over Pittsburgh. It’s not even debatable that New England’s defense faces its tough challenge of the season. But even for a resurgent Pittsburgh defense, which has improved by leaps and bounds since a healthy James Harrison, Bud Dupree and Ryan Shazier returned, can the Patriots be stopped? This past weekend they hung 34 points and approached 400 yards against a Texans defense that was metrically one of the best units in the league. Interesting trend to be aware of: New England is 1-6 ATS in their last seven AFC Championship games. They are currently -6 home favorites at most sportsbooks.

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Memphis Grizzlies at Washington Wizards

01.18.2017     10:32 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Memphis at Washington -2 O/U 207 
Recommendation: Washington

The markets haven’t come close to catching up with the Wizards in recent weeks, particularly on their home floor.  The Wizards are 15-7 SU since their 2-8 start.  At home, the numbers are even more impressive: 12-0 SU, 11-1 ATS ; a streak that dates back to early December.  Shooting guard Bradley Beal: “We have that extra urge here, that will to want to win. We want to be a great team here and home, we want to have home court when playoff time comes around."

Washington’s run of success is no fluke.  Point guard John Wall is playing at a superstar level, ranked #5 in the NBA (behind Westbrook, Curry, Lowry and Paul) in REAL plus/minus for point guards.  Small forward Otto Porter has come into his own as well, ranked #6 at his position in REAL plus/minus, behind the likes of LeBron, Kawhi, Greek Freak, Durant and Jimmy Butler.  Marcin Gortat is cleaning up in the low post, Beal is draining three’s, and despite a relatively weak bench, Scott Brooks has a surging, confident team right now.

The Wizards are rested and ready, playing only their third game in the last seven days, all at home.  The Grizzlies are on the other end of the ‘rested and ready’ spectrum.  This will be their 14th consecutive court change, a brutal scheduling stretch that has left them without back-2-back home games since the week before Christmas.  They’ve played in all four US time zones in their last six games; looking gassed and out of sync in a home loss to Chicago in their last contest.

Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale, talking about how he’s trying to patch things through the Grizzlies rough scheduling stretch and their near constant battle with key injuries:  “We’re trying to feel our way through this thing and see what works and what doesn’t work as we get these guys back healthy and getting their legs under them. We’ve just got to figure it out...and be more consistent.”  That’s no bet-on quote!

NBA Handicapping: Clippers lose Paul to injury, face daunting upcoming schedule

01.18.2017     09:26 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
It doesn't take a genius to know that Chris Paul has a massive impact. According to ESPN's stats, the Clippers are 20 points better per 100 possessions when Paul is on the floor. Well, he won't be on the floor for a while as Paul suffered a thumb injury and will miss 6-8 weeks. Making matters worse is LA's upcoming schedule. Eleven of their next 15 are on the road. Four of those games are back-to-back situations. And three are against Golden State.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: TCU Horned Frogs at Texas Tech Red Raiders

01.18.2017     09:17 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Andrew Lange blog entry.
TCU at Texas Tech -4.5 O/U 137 
Recommendation: Under

Off Saturday 84-75 loss at OKlahoma, I looked for maximum effort and focus from Texas Tech tonight as it plays host to TCU. The Red Raiders have fired back very strong following their three previous losses. After losing to Auburn they produced a 75-51 win over Utah State. They blew a 14-point second half lead in Ames but bounced back with an overtime win over West Virginia. And after being outclassed at Kansas, the Red Raiders grinded out a win over Kansas State, 66-65. The common themes in those three contests was great TTU defense, a slower pace, and all three going under the total in regulation. First-year head coach Chris Beard was extremely disappointed with his team's shot selection and transition defense against the Sooners. Expect those to be corrected tonight. I look for TCU to bounce the other way after having its best offensive showing of the year at home against Iowa State. The Horned Frogs shot out of their minds (1.24 ppp) en route to an 84-77 win. While they've played a handful of high scoring games, in watching TCU, they generally like to play at a moderate pace and work to get versatile big man Vladimir Brodziansky touches in the paint. Overall, this is a pretty even matchup and one that could very well come down to the last few possessions. We'll look to play it under the total.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: St. Bonaventure Bonnies at Saint Louis Billikens

01.17.2017     12:02 PM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Rob Veno blog entry.
St. Bonaventure -10 at Saint Louis O/U 141.5 
Recommendation: Under

Without starting point guard and leading scorer Jaylen Adams (22.2 ppg) in the lineup the past two games, St. Bonaventure’s high octane offense has been slowed considerably. This past Saturday at a neutral site in Rochester, NY, the Bonnies defeated Fordham 73-53 and prior to that they lost 78-61 at Richmond. Tonight in their third straight game away from home and their longest A-10 road trip, they may have to go without Adams again. And, for the second straight game St. Bonaventure is going to be faced with a methodical, patient, half court style team. St. Louis ranks #299 in the KenPom adjusted tempo ratings which mirrors the #302 position Fordham has. The Rams were able to contain the number of shot attempts in Saturday’s game vs. the Bonnies which led to only 262 potential points in that game. 48.2% of those points were scored which is solid offensive efficiency but the final score only totaled 126.

Saint Louis meanwhile has been without their starting PG and leading scorer Jermaine Bishop for the last eight games. The Billikens array of youth and injuries have been key cogs in a miserable offensive season (worst in A-10 61 ppg and 39.4 FG%) and before the season started, Travis Ford referred to his squad as limited offensively. Unable to truly implement his 94-foot style, Ford has tried to mask the team’s offensive deficiencies by retaining their style from recent years and it’s allowed them keep their first five A-10 game results to an average of 135.2 ppg. 

SLU has played a combination of quicker paced and highly efficient A-10 offenses in their last four games so seeing St. Bonaventure tonight will not be anything new. Even if Adams plays for the Bonnies tonight, must note that he played 40 minutes fully healthy in the pair of meetings last season and those games totaled 127 and 143. With the fundamentals and situationals presented to us here, the current game total of 141.5 seems a bit high which signals a look toward the under.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Buffalo Bulls at Kent State Golden Flashes

01.17.2017     09:39 AM     Otto Sports     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Otto Sports blog entry.
Buffalo at Kent State -3 O/U 154 
Recommendation: Kent State

Quietly, the Buffalo Bulls have represented the MAC in the last two NCAA Tournaments. Last year's team was at one point 14-12 and 7-6 in league play but won six out of its last eight games, including three in the MAC Tournament, only to lose to Miami in competitive fashion, 79-72, in the first round. This season hasn't gone nearly as smoothly as the Bulls enter tonight's game at Kent State with a 7-10 record and 1-3 mark in MAC play. Reports have surfaced that there is a negative vibe within the program and it showed last time out as Buffalo was hammered at home by Ball State, 92-77. Here's a snippet from a recap of the game.

After Saturday's second straight home loss, a 92-77 defeat to Ball State, Oats was questioning the mindset and toughness of virtually his entire squad. His team is in a crisis, and it was evident before the opening tip.

Perkins was benched for the first 10 minutes as punishment for his meltdown against Ohio. Oats benched senior guard Willie Conner for the first 6:40 for his technical in that game. Senior Blake Hamilton, UB's best player and last year's MAC title game hero, sat out the first two minutes for dogging it in practice.

Another report indicated that the team's starting lineup was changed due to off-the-court issues between two players as well as a player benched due to lack of effort in practice. All told, it doesn't sound like a good situation.

Meanwhile, Kent State showed capable with a road win over Texas and a 10-point win over Ball State to open up MAC play. But since then, the Golden Flashes have dropped three straight including back-to-back barnburners. They also haven't beaten Buffalo since 2013 which suggests a focused effort against what sounds like a team in disarray. We'll lay the short price with the home favorite tonight.

Sportsbooks love to talk about getting thrashed by the betting public

01.17.2017     09:22 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Sportsbooks are a business and a lot of their profit is generated from casual bettors; the "betting public." So when the postseason hits you tend to read a lot of articles about the "betting public" getting the best of the sportsbooks. Last week, outright wins by the Steelers and Packers reportedly proved costly. The week prior it was Clemson's win over Alabama that "crushed the books." What you generally don't read is articles about games in which 80% of the tickets are on one side but 80% of the money is on the other; the old square/sharp divide. That wouldn't be good marketing.

NFL Betting Trends: Packers-Falcons first game to be totaled 60 since 2000

01.17.2017     09:08 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Well, what do we have here? An NFL total of 60? When was the last time that occurred? Good question and according to one database, it hasn't since October 29, 2000 when the St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers closed 62 (and landed 59). Since then, there have been a handful of 59/59.5's but no 60's. What's interesting is that Packers and Falcons met during the regular season; Week 8 to be exact. That total closed 51. The game, however, went flying over as Rodgers and Ryan combined for 56-of-73, 534 yards, seven touchdowns and no interceptions.

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Charlotte Bobcats at Philadelphia 76ers

01.13.2017     12:31 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Charlotte at Philadelphia +5 O/U 209.5 
Recommendation: Philadelphia

This is a tale of two teams headed in opposite directions right now. Charlotte is slumping, losers of three straight on their current road trip and five of their last six overall.  The lone win during this entire stretch came in a game against OKC in which the Hornets got to the free throw line a whopping 49 times, compared to only 23 attempts for the Thunder.

Charlotte’s Nicholas Batum doesn’t attract much attention in the betting world, but he’s got a HUGE impact on the floor for the Hornets.  Here’s what forward Marvin Williams had to say about his teammate:

"I can't say enough about how much this team needs Nic Batum. Not only offensively what he brings to the table for himself and the rest of us, but defensively as well. He's such a smart player, such a great player, on both ends of the floor. When you (lose) a guy like that, who does so many things, the team does struggle a little bit in his absence. If he's back out there, it will make a huge difference."  Batum is VERY questionable tonight, still suffering from a knee injury that has kept him sidelined over the past two games.

And the Hornets have stopped playing defense, allowing more than 114 points per game during this 1-5 skid.  I don’t yet trust Philly against elite defensive teams, but when they face foes that aren’t bringing it on the defensive end of the court, they’re capable of putting up buckets in bunches, just as they’ve done against the Knicks, Nets, T-wolves and Nuggets while winning four times in their last five games (5-0 ATS).

When the very worst franchise in the NBA in recent seasons starts playing competitive basketball, there’s ample line value to support them on the way up! Philly has already exceeded their win total from last year.  Center Joel Embiid prior to their win over New York on Wednesday:"We are seven or eight games out of the playoffs, so we have a chance…. We are coming together. We are learning how to play with each other.”  Embiid after the win: "The last couple games we've been finishing, so it gives us a lot of confidence."

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Detroit Red Wings at Dallas Stars

01.12.2017     10:31 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly

Submitted by ICC blog entry.
Detroit at Dallas -145 O/U 5.5 
Recommendation: Over

Detroit has found its offense in recent games. The return of Justin Abdelkader and defenseman Mike Green (a better offensive defenseman than a defensive one) from injury has resulted in 3+ goals in eight of their L10 games (6-3-1 O/U). However, Detroit is struggling at the other end of the ice due to subpar goaltending and defensive play; injuries to stalwart defensemen Brendan Smith and Niklas Kronwall a main reason why. The Red Wings have surrendered 34, 35 and 43 shots on goal in their last three games and that spells trouble in terms of keeping your goals against numbers down. Dallas remains a below average defensive team. They’ve given up three goals per game on the season which ranks 28th in the NHL and making matters worse for the Stars is the fact they just lost one of their better young defensemen in Jamie Oleksiak to injury. From a season-long perspective, neither team has trended strong towards the over (Detroit 18-17 O/U, Dallas 19-23 O/U) but injuries and current form suggest tonight’s game will feature plenty of shots and more than a few that hit the back of the net. Play this one OVER.
